I'm sure Big Al would be delighted. You can contact Big Al directly, or I can give him a ping, whichever you prefer.

Now how am I supposed to work on my own campaign when I have this to peruse?

How am I supposed to go to work under the same circumstances?!?!

This is spectacular! Thank you!

As promised (?), here are a few notes for playing in the 15th century. I don't own either Ghosts of Dragonspear Castle or Scourge of the Sword Coast (I had to pester a friend for the references), but if you want some in-deep info about NPCs and places, just ask.

Long ago, in the distant past, they fell into decay. The philosopher’s path... The river of glory... Even the saints resting in the darkness rise up without response and block the way...

Something i just noticed.

On page 117 the term Balduran fisherfolk appears on line 21-22, but the Everwinking Eye article - Words to the Wise - states that the place nomenclature for Baldur's Gate is Baldurian (never Balduran, for to misuse the founder's name is to insult his memory and the city).

I'm slowly working my way through reading this one, and I've been compiling a list of edits. Mostly just things like a missing word here or a dropped parenthesis there.

I can't recall the place. They did bind it. Just google custom printing and binding. It was simple, just upload the PDF, etc.

Hello

I'm reading Under Illefarn Anew and I love it very much.

I was intriguing about the "lost well" :

"The lost well was overrun by an army of goblins and orcs led by hobgoblins in the Year of the Shattered Altar (1264 DR), but no trace of the dwarven population was ever found."

Is there something more about it ?

Edit : sorry, I've not seen the note.

"Soyez réalistes : demandez l'impossible"

Sorry for my English... it's not my native tongue.

So the right question is : what's well is the lost one ?

The large ones are Thelarn's Fist, Sabrishon, and Iritasker. The smaller ones are Uestingpool and Tunthryn.

Glad you are enjoying it.

The "lost well" was meant to build off FR11 – Dwarves Deep, page 59. My thought is there was once a sixth well which was abandoned / forgotten / buried under mysterious circumstances. It's up to you if you want to take that hook and run with it, but I am unlikely to develop it further for a long time.

The "army of goblins and orcs led by hobgoblins in the Year of the Shattered Altar (1264 DR)" was meant to build off Prayers from the Faithful, page 37.

Hello everyone! Eric, thank you so much for this very valuable book. It is a very high quality work. Congratulations. It's impressive!

Unfortunately I am only having access to the material recently. Questions: Why is the book dated in 2014 when the book was released now in 2019? And why are the rules in 3.5 and not in 5th edition? (No problem with the 3rd edition, just to know).

Sorry for my english.

I wrote it a while ago, but only decided to post it recently.

I'm much more comfortable with 3.5e than 5e. (Not knocking 5e.) Plus, so much more material was published for 3.5e, there's a lot more to play with, rules-wise.
